Our project funding is allocated based on strategic priority areas and informed by industry consultation. Annual allocations range from $40,000 for the development of new training courses in priority areas, to $250,000 p.a. for major workforce development projects up to 4 years in duration.
Project funding is available for entities contributing to building and construction training and workforce development including Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), Not For Profits and private sector organisations with a track record of delivering high quality outcomes.

Joint applications are welcome and encouraged, but are not a prerequisite for funding.
Joint applicants will be required to indentify a 'project lead' with overall project responsibility.
Keystone Tasmania will open calls for Expressions of Interest each July.
